Zapier is an online automation tool that enables you to connect two or more otherwise unrelated applications in order to automate repetitive workflows without coding.
You create a 'Zap' by defining triggers that occur in one application and the actions to be performed by another app in response. Of-course you can also define more complex scenarios involving multiple triggers, actions, and applications.
By creating Cloudinary Zaps, you can integrate Cloudinary capabilities with other applications. For example, you could set up Zaps that:
- Automate migration to Cloudinary by uploading every image or video stored in a particular folder of a Dropbox, GoogleDrive, or Box account directly to Cloudinary.
- Get notifications to Gmail or Slack every time someone uploads a file with a particular tag.
- Generate image or video transformations based on transformations defined in rows of an Excel or other spreadsheet file.
- Integrate with other media-rich platforms.
These are just a few ideas to get you started. You can set up Zaps between Cloudinary and any other app on Zapier to create virtually unlimited Cloudinary automations.
Create your first Cloudinary Zap:
- Select the app that you want Cloudinary to connect to, or type the name of the app in the textbox. A ready-made workflow may be available for the app you select, and its description will appear under Popular with Cloudinary users.
- Once you find the workflow you want to implement, click Try it. You'll be prompted to log in to both Cloudinary and the selected app within the Zapier site.
- Set up the triggers and actions that will drive your workflow and start using your brand-new work flow right away.
If a ready-made workflow is not available for the app you select, you can Create your own workflow. Click Try it and follow the instructions in the Zapier page that opens.
To jump straight to Zapier to start building your Zap, click Create from scratch.
